International students are able to gain a deep insight to Australian family life and simultaneously improve their English proficiency by staying with an approved homestay family.

Our school recruits caring and supportive homestay families to ensure that students enjoy their time studying at Alexandra Hills. Our school provides a Homestay program to suit a variety of needs and great care is taken to match student interests with their homestay family. The more information a student can provide will help towards finding the right family for them.

Many International students have formed such a close bond with their hosts that they continue to maintain contact with them long after they have returned home.

​School approved homestay families are available from Year 7 to Year 12, and it is expected that an international student would stay with the one family for the duration of their study.
